Hello Again!

Here's a simple card made with the "You're Amazing" set.  I was going for neutral colors because I wanted to use the Crumb Cake Seam Binding I had on hand.  I love that stuff!  I originally had a panel of crumb cake, but it lacked that somethin'-somethin'.  So I cut out the balloons--one stamped "full strength" and the other stamped as a "second generation" so it comes out just a tad lighter.  I had a piece of DSP from the Sweater Weather pack sitting on my desk turned to the yellow plaid side.  I flipped it over and found a subtle dotty piece of Soft Sky DSP--and it already had a bit of distressing on it!  Yay!  I think the Soft Sky makes the card POP and I like the way it refers to the sky in which the balloons are floating--and come to think of it, the Fancy Fold Embossing Folder resembles clouds.  How about that? I accidentally pulled a theme together!

(Stamp Sets:  You're Amazing, Lacy & Lovely; Ink:  Early Espresso;  Card Stock: Basic Black, Early Espresso, Crumb Cake; DSP:  Sweater Weather; Accessories:  Fancy Folder Embossing Folder, Crumb Cake Seam Binding)
